Principal's Message

 Dear Nighthawk Family,

I want to welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 school year.  I look forward to meeting our new students, as well as seeing all of our great returning students.  I want you to know that the entire staff at Nightingale has worked hard to prepare for this school year and we are excited to have you as part of our Nighthawk family.Over the last four years Nightingale has made great strides in improving our students’ educational experiences.  The opening of three themed magnets and our Visual and Performing Arts Academy allows nightingale to provide a comprehensive educational experience for students with a variety of educational interest.  This Nightingale evolution has resulted in an increase in student enrollment and increased student academic achievement.   I promise you our school staff will continue to work with our students, their families, and the greater school community to encourage and motivate all students to reach their fullest potential.  We will continue to support our students as they develop a love for learning and grow-up to be responsible citizens striving to continue to make the world a better place.   



In closing, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. I am confident we will accomplish this by working together by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. I welcome all of you to visit our school anytime so you can see first hand the great things our students are doing.




Dr. Douglas Meza
